||Alive & Kicking is a charitable enterprise focused on reviving the local manufacture of affordable, durable, repairable leather balls in Sub-Saharan Africa. In addition, a sport-based preventive health programme focusing on HIV/AIDS and other diseases of poverty is being developed and health materials will be provided in conjunction with the sale of balls to schools and youth organisations.
Alive & Kicking facilitates greater access to sport by supplying vital sporting equipment at prices that the majority of Africans can afford. In so doing, this self-sustainable project acts as the catalyst for both grassroots economic development and health education, harnessing the power of sport to target vulnerable adolescents.
